Either way, you have a copy now. I was going to offer burning ya a copy and mailing it to ya
Thanks for the offer anyway, but it would have been for a different language.
Your dv1000 may have come with a recovery CD, but my friend's dv1000 came without - only came with recovery CD creation software that burns a CD from the recovery partition (I have another dv1000 here too and it's the same). Looks like this varies from market to market, just like with Dell.
